From protest banners to embroidered passports, abstract fabric designs to narrative tapestries, Stitch in Time demonstrates how artists employ textiles and its associations of a popular, vernacular culture to shape and comment on contemporary life. Beginning with the groundbreaking work of Bauhaus artist, Anni Albers, the exhibition includes sensitive depictions of social and political issues as well as considered explorations of how fabrics can be deployed in new and imaginative ways.

The exhibition has been supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, ID 2015 and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
